Property of a deceased's estate
c.1955 Dot Trials Project
Frame no. H550288
In post-war years, Manchester-based Dot concentrated on the production of Villiers-engined lightweights, becoming a major force in the trials and scrambles fields. The Dot was the most successful lightweight scrambler from the late 1940s to the 1960s when Greeves took over, often having the beating of larger-engined and better-funded rivals on numerous occasions. Dot also offered a trials model, although major successes in that discipline would not be achieved until 1958 and the return from National Service of Eric Adcock, who would go on to win over 750 awards for the Mancunian manufacturer. This Dot trials machine has been kept in dry storage for many years. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
